Database Systems Summary

Database Systems: A Practical Approach to Design, Implementation and Management by Thomas Connolly

The Second Edition of this popular new text is particularly relevant for design-oriented database courses. New coverage brings it right up to date with the inclusion of new material on distributed databases, object-oriented databases, data mining, data warehouses, multimedia databases and the Internet. The practical emphasis of the book is maintained, providing a strong foundation in good design practice so that the student can master the methodology in an accessible, step-by-step fashion. The methodology is then applied to a worked example so that the student learns to design and build applications using a leading commercial database system.
